Eight months in the past, I was working part-time on the library, fortunately coming dwelling on the finish of every day to my small household. Things modified when my father-in-law, John, got here to stay with us. He’s 79 and was not thriving residing alone. One yr after his spouse died, he was reducing weight, lacking physician’s appointments, and his home wasn’t as clear as we might have appreciated. Now, he lives with us, and I have realized a lot about caring for an older particular person.
